Bose has enhanced its sound system for the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette — continuing the tradition of providing premium audio for the iconic sports car since 1983. Using proprietary analytic tools, digital signal processing and six channels of custom equalization, the Bose system is more precisely tuned for the unique acoustics of the Corvette’s interior –- and includes technologies to deliver more lifelike audio across the entire frequency range.
Rich low notes are delivered from newly designed, 10-inch proprietary Nd woofers. Engineered with a larger, neodymium magnet and improved materials, they can play deeper and louder than previous Nd woofers, and perform more consistently over time –- without taking up additional vehicle space.
Each Nd woofer is optimized to work with a tweeter and mid-range speaker to form a 3-way front speaker configuration reproducing music with improved clarity and a wider soundstage. A mid-range centerfill speaker, located in the instrument panel, creates a more precise center image. Two wide-range speakers, concealed in the side panels, add to the immersive listening experience. And even when played at loud volume levels, the system performs with precision and clarity –- and there is no audible distortion.
The Bose system for the Corvette features improved AudioPilot noise compensation technology. This helps to more precisely account for the effects of vehicle speed and preserve the listening experience when the Corvette is cruising on rough surfaces, where road and wind noise are most noticeable. Using a built-in microphone, Bose enhanced digital signal processing and proprietary compensation algorithms, Bose AudioPilot technology monitors the sound levels inside the vehicle, analyzes unwanted noise, and adjusts the music to reduce its effect. It’s automatic and allows for faster, more effective compensation.
The Bose system in the 2012 Chevrolet Corvette will be available as an option. For more information on Bose automotive systems and technologies visit www.Bose.com/automotive.
